I am a registered Audiologist, Hearing Aid Dispenser and Hearing Therapist based in Sheffield specialising in the Rehabilitation of Hearing Loss and Tinnitus

For two decades I have worked as a Chief Audiologist and Hearing Therapist within the NHS. I have previously been the lead in Adult Rehabilitation in an NHS Health Trust specialising in complex hearing losses and Tinnitus Management. Currently I run a multiple centre community Audiology NHS service across Wakefield and North Kirklees. I believe this background has provided me with the skills to deliver a world class service to all my patients.

I am a national assessor for The United Kingdom Assessment Service (UKAS) in Audiology

I am a peer reviewer of Tinnitus research for the International Journal of Audiology and third author on a research paper examining the management of Low Frequency Noise Complaint
